A TikTok influencer has headed online to share all the secrets to her success. Now her full-time job, Star Holroyd makes her money off the social media platform in 4 simple ways.
The young woman has an impressive 693,000 followers on the app, and over 25.5m likes altogether on her content.
She became popular last year after posting relatable videos about memories from school and certainly got people laughing after giving them an education in British slang words.
The content creator shared that she'd been asked a lot how she makes her cash online and so thought it a good idea to finally share her secrets.
Firstly, she earns money from TikTok’s “Creator Fund,” where content creators make money depending on how well received their videos are on the platform. Star earns between R6-R600 here depending on her viewership.
Freelance work was Star’s second form of earning, such as her channel about British slang.
Her third way of earning is through fun product placement and collaborations with certain brands, getting commission off products linked on her page. The hardworking babe has made around R8 000 from this type of work in the last month.
Star’s fourth and final mode of income is through ads and sponsorships.
“This is where is make most of my money,” she explains. “It’s the same as if you saw a billboard or a magazine advert, but they’re advertising on my social channels.”
In April, Star earned £5,000 (before tax and commission) and in May this decreased to £1,700 (before tax and commission).
Altogether from April to June, Star earned £14,500 (before tax and commission) from advertising.
Although the inluencer has little job security because of how often amount fluctuates, she adds that she would not choose to do anything else.
“I’m so grateful that I get to do this for a living, and thank you so much if you’re one of my followers - this happened by accident, I was just trying to keep entethought up a fun and clever way of keeping its doors open while still following all level 4 lockdown protocols.
The cosy take-away now serves its customers right in their own cars and many other restaurants have followed suit.

It seems diners definitely get the 5-star treatment with the added convenience of staying in the car. A large vertical tray holds food and beverage items across the length of the vehicle while diners simply dig in.
Although a little unconventional, South Africans jumped at the thought of continuing to support local businesses in any way they could. Others were a little concerned government might soon end up banning the brilliant idea.
